Studying for the LSAT / Still working through NOVA games
« on: May 29, 2006, 01:46:41 AM »
Hi -

Since I finished the LGB, I am - as advised to do so here - working through the NOVA book. Although I still have qualms as to the legitimacy of some of the exercise questions in the game sections despite some reassurances, my real concern is with the set-up/strategies, etc. Thus far (and I haven't made it that far, yet), it does not seem as though much is really 'taught' in terms of set-up in the same manner as it is in the LGB. The small amounts of instruction offer different suggestions for set-ups...am I merely using this to get more games practice or should I be employing NOVA's strategies? What do you think?

In the 'exercuses' section, are these real LSAT games? They seem pretty weird to me for some reaosn

Law School Applications / LSAC GPA + AP Credits
« on: May 08, 2006, 09:00:34 PM »
Hey -

My school gave me AP credits for an AP that I only got a 3 on (and some 4's,5's, too). In any case, there's no 'grade' for these in the "A,A-,B+" sense, but I did get credits. How will LSAC treat this?

Thanks

Law School Applications / Freshman year 'strike'
« on: May 08, 2006, 04:59:59 PM »
Hey-

I've been looking over law apps recently, and they all ask about disciplinary sanctions from schools. When I was a freshman, I got a 'strike' through my university for drinking underage. I'm guessing I'd need to report this -- will this greatly hurt my chances at admission?

Does this help with LR or LG? What do you guys think?

Studying for the LSAT / LG Help -- USING LGB
« on: May 01, 2006, 09:45:43 PM »
Hey, Again-

I've been using the LGB meticulously for about two weeks now and am up to the chapter on the ‘forgotten few.’ I’m going through the book very slowly, and have been photocopying the test sections as per advice on this board. What I think is happening – and I’m not entirely sure – is that I’m becoming acquainted with the games from the book and not actually learning the general tricks, etc. I’ve DEFINITELY gotten better at LG as I used to be entirely inept with them, and can now get 15-16 right per section consistently when I take practice sections, but this is not good enough for me as I’d like to be getting only 1 or 2 wrong per section. Also, I still feel ‘lost’ when I try to tackle certain games that are not in the LGB. Suggestions to improve? Comments?

Thanks as always!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Need NOVA

What is NOVA exactly? Would it be smart to pick it up in conjunction with LRB/LGB and a course?

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan Q
« on: April 24, 2006, 07:15:11 PM »
Hey Guys,

I'm working through the LGB and the LRB from now until the end of June when I am taking a Kaplan course. I know most of you insist that taking Kaplan is a bad idea, but there's no real other options where I live. Here's my question: if I work through the bibles and get relatively good at this stuff, will the techniques I learn in Kaplan/etc. screw me up?

Suggestions?

Studying for the LSAT / Am I screwed, dumb or both?

Hey all -- first post.

I'm a reasonably good student who typically does quite well in school. I've started prepping for the LSATs (mostly marginal stuff till the Summer, as I'm planning to take it in Oct). In any case, I'm seemingly unable to do the Logic Games. It takes me so long to work through them, and it makes me dizzy and intimidated. I don't really have the same problem with the other sections as I usually only get 4-5 wrong in LR and 3-4 in RC. Honestly, though -- I CAN'T do these logic games. Am I doomed?
